#BinayBwisitsUPLB: Students take to Twitter to criticize Binay
MANILA, Philippines – What happens when a politician is interrogated by students from one of the Philippines' premier universities?
On Tuesday, September 15, Vice President Jejomar Binay visited UP Los Baños to attend the “Forum on Governance, Transparency and Social Transformation.”
The mayhem began when the students were given the floor for a question-and-answer session with the presidential candidate. The no-holds-barred exchange eventually led to students taking to the internet to express their resentment at Binay's vague answers to a number of questions.
Shortly after the event, #BinayVisitsUPLB began trending on Twitter, followed by satirical tweets of Binay's statements with the hashtag BinayBwisitsUPLB.

On August 3, Binay also trended when he delivered what he called the "True State of the Nation Address," a week after Philippine President Benigno Aquino III's 6th and final State of the Nation Address. Netizens thought Aquino's version was more truthful. – Rappler.com
